My Christmas Tree

It’s kinda lame…


Our Newest Addition

On the way home from work yesterday, I walked by a flowershop selling pointsettias. They were brilliant colored and available in a small size, so I picked one up. It’s been placed on my dresser for the time being, until I finish cleaning off my living room table. After that, all that will be left will be to give it a name. Any suggestions?

Exposure – The Waterfall

When I went to Tokugawa Gardens, I played around with the settings on my camera. I wanted to emulate the types of flowing water shots you see in photography books.

So step one was to find a waterfall. I lucked out because this particular fall has a lot of little mini ones as well.

Step two was to find a spot to camp out with my gear. I don’t have a proper tripod yet, so I needed a place where I could sit or couch, and be out of other people’s way. I found a large stone IN the river that led off of the falls.

After setting up, I started snapping away, hoping for the best. I quickly learned that I had to keep the camera still for several seconds after shooting for best results. So, I ended up kneeling, and resting the camera (facing slightly upwards) on my lap.

All in all, I think they turned out alright. What do you think?
